The Bible is full of it - stories about seed planters, planting seeds and reaping the fruit. A dance teacher in Springhill did that better than almost anyone I know.
Everywhere you look you see the proof - none of this beauty, this grace would have been possible had someone not first planted a seed.
"I believe that God has asked me to plant seeds and I'm happy that my little studio is growing right here in Springhill."
She started planting in the 1990's. It began with just a few girls but Staci Sandefur's reputation grew and so did her classes, because here you didn't just learn to dance.
"She had hundreds of eyes on her at any one time and it wasn't just the dance it was the way she treated people."
"She just had a presence about her. She was so beautiful and graceful. You wanted to be like her."
"She loved those girls and everyone of them, then and now, they knew Staci loved them."
"She was always one to give hugs away she would hug your neck at the drop of a hat."
"They gave us the news the first week of January 2011. There was nothing they could do for Staci."
"The most touching thing I remember was the Christmas present she gave me was a wedding ring. On it she had inscribed - God be with us together and a part. That was the greatest gift she ever gave me."
"All these girls are very special to me and I hope I have made a difference in there lives because i know they have in mine."
Staci passed away this January. Her dance studio will live on in Springhill in her memory, a tribute to the power of a seed planter.
